PHARSALIA – More than five years after Chenango County opened a multi-million dollar cell at the solid waste landfill in the Town of Pharsalia, county executives are now moving forward with plans to have another cell built and ready for use within two years.
At the year-end meeting of the Chenango County Board of Supervisors, town and city officials moved to authorize a $249,700 agreement with Barton and Loguidice, of Syracuse, for engineering and development of a new solid waste cell at the Chenango County landfill. The contract encompasses design, bidding assistance, construction, administration, construction inspection and construction certification services.
The newest cell will be the fourth solid waste cell at the county landfill. As per the recently signed agreement, Barton and Loguidice should have engineering, bidding and installation of required water quality testing wells due to the expansion of the landfill completed by June to assure compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) regulations.
